of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he didn't say december 7th, a day that will live in tragedy, it is a day that will live in infamy. it has to do with agency and cause. an accident is a tragedy and it has a cause and has to do with fate, accident, luck. when the agency is human evil that is beyond a tragedy. it's a crime. that is what we're dealing with. i agree it's a little early. it was obvious an attack. to call it terrorism you had to be sure that the motive was a political one. remember what happened in the tucson shooting where a member of c
addressed to president obama field tested positive for ricin poison. the day after a letter was also sent to senator roger wicker also tested positive for the same substance. >>> we begin with new information about the deadly bombing at the boston marathon. as the president and first lady prepare to travel to boston on thursday. after much speculation this afternoon, the fbi has releasted a statement. they say, quote, contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the boston marathon attack. we do know investigators have identified solid leads from video evidence, including images of a person or persons carrying and dropping bags at the bombing scene. now, these pictures from whdh show a bag near a trash can at the blast site. just one part of the key evidence that investigators are pursuing to try to find the perpetrators. right now, there are conflicting reports as to how close they are to identifying any individuals. we expect more at an fbi briefing within the next hour. right now i want to go straight to nbc news justice correspondent, pete willi
have thought that gun control would be such a central part of the debate in president obama's second term? picking up on that, how much of what actually gets done is just sort of the circumstances that occur, the events and crises that draw our attention and how much is presidential skill or the political set of facts in terms of who controls the senate and congress. what is really driving our policy? >> it has been a combination of all those things. that's what's interesting. if you look at smart presidents like lyndon baines johnson became masterful manipulators of the political process to pass legislation including civil rights law that anyone thought was possible. and i think no one would have thought it was even possible to discuss gun control legislation and immigration at the same time at the beginning of barack obama's first term. and yet circumstances changed. in the immigration law, what is driving all this is clearly the poll numbers. that's all that is behind this whole gang of 8 legislative effort. so i think a new sort of deal of the cards, if you will. a new seventh ci
are a threat to the world. yet, president obama will not say that. >> when a tragedy like this happens, with public safety at risk and the stakes so high, it's important that we do this right. that's why we have investigations. that's why we relentlessly gather the facts. that's why we have courts. that's why we take care not to rush to judgment. not about the motivations of these individuals, certainly not about entire groups of people. >> bill: but, of course, it's all about motivation and it is about a specific group of people. president obama is wrong, seriously wrong. it's clear the two boston bombers were jihadists. they believed they have a right to kill children to serve their religion. who else does that? what other theology in this world justifies murdering innocent people? the answer is? only radical islam allows terror murder. that's the truth. president obama doesn't want to say the truth. and the reason is politics. as we reported last night, there are muslim nations that help the u.s.a. they provide vital intelligence. their secret police actually kill jihadists. mr. oba
." we've got a controversial title for you now is obama weak? oh damn, it might not even be controversial at this point. let me bring back the panel. check out his show immediately. no after the show, no tonight. leslie saver from the nation and noah. president obama, of course, lost the battle on background checks on gun control and wondering if he didn't pressure conservatives enough. new york times writes: cenk: i find it hard to argue with that. let's continue. they also say. cenk: leslie, i find all those to be excellent questions. >> they are it's a continual frustration that we have with obama. he talks a good game, he's inspiring on many different issues. i remember when he put up the proposal for jobs and infrastructure spending in 2011 and he went out and campaigned for it and then dropped it. it wasn't going to happen and he didn't twist arms, and he didn't push for it. this happens over and over again. i'm not privy, a lot of us are not to what really does go on behind closed doors but if a lot of this reporting is correct, then, you know, why doesn't he get a
obama is meeting with his cabinet, his national security team, and counterterrorism advisers. that will happen tonight. the fbi is leading a massive investigation. you know, we can almost see it going on all around us, looking into what may have caused this twin set of bombings. and many people have been questioned. moments ago we heard from a man who witnessed the death of one of the bomb victims. that victim an 8-year-old who was killed. he has been identified as martin richard. his father ran in the marathon. the son was there to give him a hug at the end of the race, and now that family which also has suffered many injuries are in mourning. cnn's pamela brown is with me now to tell that part of the story. >> john, the witness i spoke with still in a state of shock today. he was 50 to 75 yards from yesterday's explosions. he says there is one image in particular he cannot get out of his head, that of a little boy on the ground right after the second explosion and now he believes that was 8-year-old martin richard. here's what he had to say. >> when you're in such shock you
of anonymity or the police chief in boston speaking to the record, and obama to some extent that we're going to find you hunt you down and get you. like, all that does is fuel the conversation that we're having now to a greater extend, like i just wish we lived in a country where it was ok to say obviously we're investigating this and we're not going to stop until we solve it we've got to have the george bush cowboy talk, even if it's not george bush. it seems silly and like it's out of a bad summer blockbuster. cenk: i don't mind people speculating. is a keep saying over and over again, we're all curious and talking about it. the media demand that everybody in the government call it a terrorist act. like ok, i got it, to ben's point, it looks like terrorism i think it is. i would call it whether it was right wing, leftwing, forever et cetera, but stop with obama didn't call it terrorism, i can't believe it, he's soft. what's he soft about. first of all he killed bin laden, stop with the talk. >> i think that comes from the hesitation, i'd be curious to know what that thinking was not to cal
the obama administration responsible. the money she raised recently came from $5 and $10 contributions. the money came from people who were not in her district. and her district is becoming fed up with her. host: that was michael on the republican line. the national rifle association put out a statement following the defeat of the bill. "new york times seeking a lead editorial -- broderick in albany, georgia. your thoughts? all i amirst of getting ready to graduate from political science. out of the 46 senators, two are from georgia and i plan to get on the phone and talk to them. also agun owner and i am christian. i was shocked when i was 16 years old. that if background checks were into effect back than i could have had not been shot. i'm doing what i can rallies in support to find out why the senators voted against the bill. as you know we have two senators from every state. i am just upset because background to prevent lives that were lost in the other areas -- >> as a gun owner you supported what the senate was debating yesterday? >> i felt that a background check -- they could s
to determine the exact cause of the fire. the obama administration is trying to figure out what if anything it can now do about gun control. the senate gutted legislation that would have approved background checks. four democrats joined republicans in blocking the bill, afterwards an infuriated president obama spoke and described it as a shameful day in washington. in boston today the fbi is considering a possible photo and video release of a person they believe is connected to the marathon bombings on monday. the video was taken by surveillance camera near a lord & taylor store. investigators are debating the benefits and drawbacks of releasing materials to the public. the death toll stands at three dead more than 150 injured. ten remain in critical condition, and media critics are hammering several news organization who wrongly reported that a suspect had been arrested. cnn in addition to the erroneous report that somebody had been arrested also got the man's skin color wrong. no explanation from cnn. stephanie? >> stephanie: david -- >> actually am i supposed to pit
't yet been interrogated. also why hasn't the obama administration declared the wounded terrorist to be an enemy combatant? he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions the. >> bill: well some constitutional experts dispute mr. cancery's statement if you partner up with a foreign terrorist organization you become part of that. it's about interrogation not about trial "wall street journal" has by far the most section tonight left one bomber dead, one police officer dead and other bomber gravely wounded. joining us from boston brian bender "boston globe" reporter and craner. let's pick it up ms. cram kramer with the two suspects in cambridge around 10:00 p.m. thursday night. take it from there. >> yes. that's when the chaos essentially began. what happened was they come upon officer sean collier, for reasons we do not understand yet and may never understand they open fire on him. the word that has been used for that was an assassi
president obama's agenda. why should you relate those two guys to immigration? no, let immigration go through. i hope they have the sense of know-how that when they bring this gun bill back -- they brought the health care bill back -- that they vote right. people in this country are hurting. all these republicans do, let's stop obama. republicans, wake up to rick the 90/10 want gun control. people all around the country want to elect this president and want to get his agenda to help this country. host: we will take a look at the prospects for gun control later on this morning. let's go to virginia, the independent line. caller: i just wanted to say that immigration has long been overdue, and we should not have any reason to put it off any more than we have. fromnot see the connection boston to immigration. you can never stop anybody that is wanting to do harm. the same thing in connecticut, the newtown shootings, anything like that. it is sporadic, no matter how much legislation you have, over immigration, gun control, anything like that. i do not think we can afford to put it off any
. >> stephanie: all right. the president yesterday speaking about -- >> obama: given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror. >> stephanie: that's the important thing is making sure bill o'reilly is happy with the semantics. >> he didn't call it terror! >> it seems like the far right all they cared about yesterday was semantics. something that they didn't hear in president obama's statement to the nation. >> he didn't blame the arabs. >> they didn't care about the victims in boston. they only cared about the words president obama did or didn't use. >> stephanie: not in a good place yesterday with worrying about wanda and i made a grey error in that i listened to rush limbaugh. >> oh, don't do that! >> stephanie: i shouldn't have done that. i don't even understand some people -- not only as partisans but as just carbon-based life forms. he just was being snarky and you know, making benghazi jokes. i wonder if there was a video -- no one knows. we'll find out. really? >>
with this administration is that their policies are failing. they do not believe that we're at war. >> the obama administration is failing? what you see there is the senator pivoting from legitimate questions about the fbi to using those questions to undermine the president and his entire national security policy. it's unfair and, more than that, it's wrong. while a terror victim, a fallen police officer, were being laid to rest, senator graham was on fox news to use the boston tragedy as an excuse to dredge up tired, old complaints about benghazi. >> what do i mean by upping our game? making sure that when the ambassador in libya tells the state department and the department of defense that al qaeda flags are flying over benghazi, i can't defend my consulate against a coordinated attack, that you do something about it. that when a consulate is under attack and an ambassador is missing for 7 1/2 hours you have the ability to go to their rescue. and after the fact you don't lie to the american people. >> lie to the american people? what does boston benghazi? that's not a clip from last year. that
barack obama indicated his country will take further action if chemicals are confirmed. the united nations is considering sending a fact finding mission to the country. >>> archaeologists in afghanistan are racing to excavate an ancient buddhist settlement rich in history. it is also rich in copper. the government plans to destroy the ruins to make way for a mine. the ruins sit on one of the largest deposits of copper in the world. a manager at a chinese state owned company want to get it out. they stumbled on the ruins once they started digging. the government suspended the project. the archaeologists have unearthed statues, paintings and other artifacts they believe date back to the 2nd to the 7th century ad. government experts say they have to stop the work by june to make way for drilling equipment. mining could begin by early next year. >> translator: managers from the afghan government and the chinese firm want to start mining as soon as possible. we've been losing profits. >> he said the mine will create 35,000 jobs and annual economic effects of $1 billion. results from the
obama and mississippi senator roger wicker have initially tested positive for ricin, a deadly poison. we should point out the initial tests are sometimes inaccurate but they did create an evacuation in the senate today. i want to bring in chief white house correspondent jessica yellin at the white house and chief congressional correspondent dana bash on capitol hill. jessica, let's start with you. what is the white house telling us about this letter to president obama? i know it didn't actually arrive at the white house, but what do we know about the substance in this letter? >> jake, well, we know first of all that they are -- the fbi and the secret service are continuing to investigate and conducting further tests on this letter. they say that they had protocol set up for exactly this kind of incident and this is the exact standard incident that they, you know, protocol they set up after 9/11. the letter contained a message that was parallel to the same message that was in a letter sent to senator wicker. it said, quote, i am -- it said to see a wrong and not expose it is to become a s
alert right now with the news this hour that a letter addressed to president obama contained a suspicious substance. the letter was intercepted as a screening facility and initial tests show it could contain the deadly poison ricin. the fbi says it's very lard to a letter sent yesterday to senator roger wicker of mississippi. which also tested positive for ricin. a third suspicious package may have arrived at the office of alabama senator richard shelby. investigators do not currently believe there is a connection to the bombing in boston. meanwhile, law enforcement officials in massachusetts are combing through more than 2,000 tips, looking through photos like this one, shall shows a bag sitting by a mailbox before the explosion. it is unclear at this point whether or not the bag has any relevance, but appears to be near the center of the explosion. president obama will be in boston tomorrow to attend a memorial service for the victims. for the loved once of those killed and maimed in the explosion, there is only confusion and many unanswered questions. joining me today here
roger wicker and the other was sent to president barack obama. they both can takened powdery substances. we're learning this from an fbi operations bulletin that went out we exclusively obtained. the it confirms both letters were sent from memphis, tennessee on april 8th. they contained the following message. to see iran and not expose it to become a silent partner to its continuance. both letters were signed, i am kc and i approved this message. the initial tests on the wicker letter were positive for ricin. we don't know what any test results were on the obama letter. both letters were intercepted before they reached their intended address, the u.s. capitol building and the white house. moments ago, senator minority leader mitch mcconnell says that means that security systems that have been put in place worked. >> i would like to recognize the postal and law enforcement officials for their excellent work in detecting and preventing this threat before it even reached the capitol. they proved the proactive measures we put in place do in fact work. >> reporter: and this fbi operations bu
the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh

hearing on their use abroad. as a candidate in 2008, barack obama rode to office with sharp criticism of president bush and his anti-terror policies. in the days and years since the first strikes, president obama is estimated to have ordered five times as many drone strikes as the bush administration. and although the strikes have been credited with decimating al qaeda, they've also been executed entirely in secret and without judicial oversite. a policy that differs significantly with what the president has told the american people. >> i am not somebody who believes that the president has the authority to do whatever he wants or whatever she wants whenever they want, just under the guise of counterterrorism. >> today's hearings will address proposals to increase their transparency. for a president who voted against the wars in iraq and won the nobel peace prize, his policy on drones have come as a surprise to many. the president's hawkishness has not been universal. that was apparent this week when the president ignored calls from gop hawks to hold a suspect of the boston bombings, d
